We travel to Provincetown every year and have found that there are a very few B&B locations that are truly outstanding. Benchmark Inn may in fact be the very best. Dan and Daniel are wonderful hosts and provided us with a welcoming experience and lovely conversation. They also helped us tremendously as the purpose of our visit this time was to find a place to purchase as a second home. They kindly connected us with professionals who have since helped us to find our place. While we may no longer require a place to stay, we will definitely make a point of visiting with our gracious Benchmark hosts on a regular basis.

We only stayed at The Benchmark for a couple of nights, but that was all we needed to discover what a gem it is. Daniel greeted us when we arrived and gave us the tour, along with some insight on P-town and where we could venture, and best ways to get there, etc. What did we learn? We needed more time in P-town! Two days wasn't enough; and we will be back for a longer stay before too long. We stayed in Room # 3 at The Benchmark, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Next time I may have to spring for the Penthouse just for the view. We will definitely be visiting The Benchmark again in the future! - Ethan Kuehl

Daniel and staff were personable and thoughtful. Rooms were so comfortable and clean! Loved the outside entrances for each individual room! The jams and cheeses as part of the continental breakfast were delish! You can't beat the location within the walking distance to everything really ;). Oh, and let's not forget how comfortable the bed was!! Right down to every last detail, Benchmark is the best!!!!

Love the Benchmark Inn! Centrally located in Provincetown, within walking distance of shops, restaurants and galleries. Rooms are very clean and the inn keepers and staff very nice. Our stay was so wonderful that we booked our stay next fall.

Our trip was so wonderful that we booked a return trip to the Benchmark Inn for next year. The Inn is spotless and the rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast spread mornings are always fresh and delicious. The Inn keepers and staff are very helpful and friendly.

We went to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Dan and Daniel made it special with a split of champagne and arranged reservations at two restaurants of their choice which we loved. Thanks, guys! Michael & Peter

This July marked my second Provincetown stay at The Benchmark Inn. Dan and Daniel are consummate inn keepers--pleasant, friendly, efficient, helpful, and unobtrusive. The location is perfect (No need for a car in Ptown!) and rooms include outdoor balconies for excellent bay views and the relaxation of salt air breezes. I stayed in the penthouse this trip--I highly recommend the privacy, upper deck views, and added sitting room with kitchen. Accommodations can make or break a vacation. The Benchmark Inn definitely contributes to a positive experience.

We really enjoyed our stay. We were close to everything in town yet the room was quiet and relaxing. Private bathroom was perfect, clean/modern and more then enough space. The room was small but worked well. 2 night tables and 2 reading lights, (one of my pet peeves is finding only one night table and one reading lamp for 2 people) I really liked the private entrance. Great idea. Dan and Daniel were excellent hosts and provided anything one could need in a B and B. Also, even the small parking space worked well. They have it all under control!

My husband and I stayed at the Benchmark Inn a few weeks ago. It was an absolutely perfect vacation in every way! Dan and Daniel were fabulous hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay with them extra special! The rooms were clean and roomy. The breakfasts were delicious! They were so kind and helped us make our way around with suggestions and all were great! We went Whale watching and shopping as well as relaxed on the beautiful beaches. It was a purely perfect getaway! We have already recommended the Inn to Friends and we plan on going back for another visit with them in the Fall!!
